Harriet and Harold in the City of Lights...or Love

Harold took Harriet to Paris.  Harriet had never been to Paris.  She was so excited to go to Paris that she made her gummy self sick.  The moment the two bears got ready to board the plane Harriet had come down with a fever and gummy aches.  She was determined to see the international city in the heart of France.  Harriet struggled most of her time there, but she pushed through and saw some major Paris hot spots.  Harold was so good to her, and patient with her sickness.  He just reassured her they would be back again.

Paris was everything Harriet ever expected.  She loved the city of lights.  She sure hopes Harold will take her back to this beautiful city again.  I think he will...because Harold is falling pretty fast for Harriet.
First class to Paris.  Harold and Harriet live quite a life.
Harriet's first sitting of the Eiffel Tower.
She loved it, and loved being there with Harold.

(Guess they will just have to come back.)
City of of love.  Harold + Harriet = Love!

London: Harriet crossed the pond

That little red gummy bear Harriet finally crossed the pond and ended up in London, England.  She was a giddy gummy bear. She even saw quite a few major attractions in her short time there.  Just to name a few;  Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Square, and just south of London the quaint town of Lewes, England.  Why was Lewes such a place for a little gummy bear?  Well, many, many, MANY years ago a festival began called the Guy Fawkes Festival.  It consists of many parades, people, fireworks, and bonfires.  Harriet had clearly never been to a festival of such magnitude.  It was exciting and fun!

Clearly, this trip to England was quick, but she was able to see a few major hot spots.  She is excited to get back to London again.  Next time she will be with Harold the Haribo...or was he there with her and just didn't want to take pictures???

Big Ben!  Up close and personal! (Possibly her favorite picture.)
